“Embracing HospiceCare Volunteers are the heart of our organization”
Embracing HospiceCare offers end of life care to terminally ill patients and their families. That care includes physical, emotional and spiritual support. Volunteers offer a special dimension to the care that we provide.
Volunteers add a special dimension to the care we provide. They can visit the patient in their home to provide respite, companionship and socialization. We offer these services regardless of where the patient lives:
- Pet Therapy
- Music Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Hair Stylist
- Vigil Volunteering
Volunteers are always needed to sit with patients, run errands, or simply assist with administrative duties in the office. If you would like to make a difference in someone’s life, please contact our volunteer director at (609) 662-9800.
While it is our privilege to have so many dedicated people volunteering with Embracing HospiceCare, there are some requirements that our volunteers must meet.
Each volunteer must agree to:
Attend a volunteer training as well as an initial interview process
Medical requirements: TB testing, proof of MMR, and drug testing
Criminal background check
Maintain Patient Confidentiality
Comply with educational components as required by regulatory agencies
